V.A – Partials III (Frequency Domain)

Frequency Domain 3/2/23

Frequency Domain making a welcome return to the fold in 2023 with a string of releases announced, starting with part 3 in their partials various artists series. Featuring familiar names to the labels as well as some new faces, the comp covers a range of styles, but keeping the F.D deepness we’ve come to love and expect.

“We said we’d never do another label comp (as it’s a lot of work), but we’re over the moon with how this one’s turned out. The third edition of our Partials series curates 18 new tracks over two sides of a C90 tape. There’s music from Frequency Domain artists Luke Sanger, Mücha, Jo Johnson, Apologist, Polypores, Datassette, Linnley, Plant43, Quiet Clapping and Matt Whitehead, plus label friends Loula Yorke, Fields We Found, Virusmoto, D1G and Golden Shields. The release also features a handful of collaborative projects between FD artists, appearing here as Trappist, Blue Lamps and Spiral Wrack. All proceeds from the compilation will support the work of UK NGO, the Refugee Council.”

Out Friday 3rd Feb via their bandcamp

International Sangman – Death Roads & Spirit Ways 2

Ish Records – 28/1/23

Chasing after the herbs like Druids, a peppery Anansi with a pink balayage hurried by carrying a bunch of loose cables and heavy bulky bags. Mumbling something to herself, we believe she said: “Music is my name. I’m a dreamer.”, we followed her about but soon after lost her path. Walking our way back, a few of these cables were scattered amongst bushes and the mossy forest ground, we found a small cardboard box containing 5 cassettes. Most of them seemed to be unused, but one read “Death Roads” on one side, and “Spirit Ways” on the other.

A somewhat divine and powerful revision of the dub sound, stripped down, full of space, hiss and dynamic depth. A beautiful shimmering with analog wash and broken textures. Dirty and deep, breathing smoke like breathing life. Dubient.

Play it loud. On big speakers. Inhale. Enjoy.

Out now on LP (limited screen print options) and digi via Ish Records

Taking prompts from walks in the wild, Sundheim armed with an iphone and recording app, brings home quiet and considered blends of found sound and synthesised accompaniment. “Glades of Flowering Stone is a like a gentle forest bath, dissolving any tension and restoring balance.”

Shared System – 2 releases from Tony Rolando & Walker Farrell

Two releases using the Make Noise Shared System, from the company’s founder and head designer Tony Rolando, alongside long-time employee of said company, Walker Farrell.

Both unique takes on the instrument and goes without saying, it’s a treat to hear music created on the machine from people instrumental in its development!

Radio.Earth: Near Amsterdam

radio.earth is a participatory radio art project concerning the ecological crisis, its effects on our environment and on the possibilities for action. The project aims to establish a network of collaboration between individuals and organisations interested and engaged in these subjects, with all their respective practices from art and science to activism.

The radio.earth mobilemic is at a periferic location south of Amsterdam, at an allotment near the former village Driemond and along the Amsterdam-Rijn canal, one of the busiest shiproutes in the Netherlands. The allotment is sided by a sort of artificial nature park that suffers from exessive nitrogen deposit. Lot’s of brambles and nettles. operating artist: michiel huijsman”
